Easy Admin Color Schemes
[resolved] Won't work cause of PHP version (5 posts)

    Too bad the new update of the plugin broke it. My server is using PHP 5.2.13 but this plugin needs 5.3..

    Because of this, my site went blank, so I had to delete the plugin by FTP, if others have the same problem.

    I've just uploaded the 4.1 release. I went back to function name prefixes for now so the plugin should now work with older versions of PHP. But, hopefully, we can go back to namespaces once PHP 5.3+ has more penetration.

    So, please update. Also, please update your vote of Works/Broken on the plugin page accordingly.

    Sorry again for the trouble this has caused...

    That's great! Thanks!
    Unfortunately, WordPress doesn't seem to keep the color scheme when using different schemes across networks. It keeps resetting. Is it normal?

    Well, I designed it so the schemes apply on a per-site basis. So, if you set a scheme on one network site it won't be set to that on any other network site.

    This was kind of a sticking point for me. I wasn't sure if when you activate a scheme if it should be activated just for your account on that site or for your account across the entire network.

    I can see how some people would want it to work either way. Like, some people may want to have a different scheme on their account for each site in the network so it's easier for them to remember at a glance which site they're working with.

    Even the default scheme and forced scheme options work on a per-site basis. So if, for example, you choose to force a scheme, it will only be forced for everyone on that site of the network; Not every site of the network.

    But, would it be useful to allow both ways? I mean, allow people to activate/etc. schemes either on a per-site basis, or on a network-wide basis. If it would be useful, what might be the best way to work that out? How should the plugin determine if the user wants to apply the scheme to their account on just one site or the whole network?

    I'm open to adding such functionality. Just not sure what the best way would be to do so.
